a DAMN GOOD IGNIS MOMENT.



But really, the more I watch it the more I realise it’s not only a fantastic Ignis moment, it’s a fantastic Chocobros moment in general? REALLY LONG POST AHEAD + UNFINISHED GAMEPLAY WRITING BUT THIS SCENE

Lemme start with Ignis because duh (if you’ve seen anything out of me the past two weeks, it’s probably been Ignis related). He’s been pretty passive about losing his eyesight up until this point. He calls it a minor sacrifice in the grand scheme of things. When Noctis and Gladio fight on the train, Ignis says nothing, even though part of the argument is his own injury. He only tries to stop Gladio by saying his name; Prompto is the one who tries to break it up (more in a moment. anyway not that Ignis really could break it up rn but you know) He’s been optimistic enough about it, though. “I’ll manage somehow” when you invite him into the mines. “This is considerably harder than I expected” he says about fighting. But sometimes you hear the boys say something and Iggy just sort of sighs. They’re dancing around him, and his injury, and the argument, and this scene is where it culminates.

The first time he actually says that it isn’t okay is because of their friendship hitting a low point, rather than his actual injury. But he is so, so aware of that injury and how it has the potential to drag them down. He still says “I would remain with you all. Til the very end” because these are his brothers and he damn well plans to, but that said.

This is the first time we hear Ignis raise his voice, I think. Not including battle cries and the like. Which is saying a lot because this boy is very, very calculated on his emotions. (ie later on when Prompto falls off the train, you hear the very audible difference in Noctis’s voice vs Iggy’s) He’s Crownsguard, Noctis is his king, he will do anything for him, and believes he has no reason to complain even if he has gone blind. But that’s a Big Thing. His yelling in this scene exactly “I know full well!” is finally, finally his frustration coming out and it’s triggered because of their bickering (or anti-bickering, since they aren’t really… speaking much).

He says he is willing to bow out if he starts to slow them down, which imo is like asking him to suffer a physical injury all over again (he is Crownsguard, Noctis is his king, he will do anything for him) but he still will DO IT because he won’t be a burden.

He goes on to give Noctis what, I think, is a much needed confidence boost. “A king pushes onward always, accepting the consequences and never looking back” and in the opening sentences for the next chapter, it literally uses those same words to describe Noct’s reaction to Ardyn’s trick: never looking back. (Also never looking back is exactly what Ignis is doing right now, which is why the choice to focus the camera so much on his scars in that moment is AMAZING.)

He continues with that to tell Gladio that Noct will be king and he will rule, but “only once he’s ready”. And this is SO important. Gladio’s interaction with Noct is painful at least and rage inducing at worst (more below) but not only does Noct need to hear this, Gladio does, too. They can push Noctis into that throne but he will never be able to lead until he is ready, and that involves coming to terms with some very, very heavy stuff that’s been happening. Everybody doesn’t handle grief the same way and they’re all having a hard go at it in very different ways thanks to the events of late.

So all of this makes this the DAMN GOOD IGNIS MOMENT. But it’s also really good for the rest of them, both in mentioned ways and others, but since I’m apparently waxing poetic

It’s like, 2AM and I just thought of a crazy idea.

It probably would never work and I’m sitting here freaking out for no reason because of it. I’ve never tried anything even a quarter as ambitious as this. I’m having insecurities and anxiety even making a post to suggest it. Which is why I’m putting it under a cut.  If there’s not enough interest or attention to this, I’ll probably just end up deleting this post.

Why am I not in bed sleeping? I tried to go to bed but instead my brain came up with this dumb scheme.

So I ditched the pencil for a few days and learned the following:

  1. Using just a finger is hard
  2. Free-handing is hard
  3. Unless it’s Jotaro
Dear uri leader Kim Jong Hyun, don’t be sad. You’re the greatest leader I’ve ever known.

I know you won’t read this, but I’ll write it anyway because I need to transform this sadness and disappointment into something else and hope that someday you will read this and know how much you mean for a lot of people.

I first knew you from Produce 101 as a part of trainees who have already debuted. I didn’t even know that a group name NU’EST exists (so I will thank Mnet for this, and just this). At first, I didn’t really notice you until you told the story about being NU’EST leader during Sorry Sorry period, and how you feel that the group’s failure is your fault (just to be clear, it’s not!). Since then my eyes are drawn to your hardworking and sincere image – and when you made a miracle by believing in Hyunbin until the end, transforming him into reliable member of the team, that’s when I knew that you’re an amazing human being and leader – not many people will go to such length to make sure other people be better at what they do, sacrificing their own practise time to teach the lacking one(s), and from that day, my fixed pick is you.

Seeing your legendary stage with Justice League team made me feel so proud and happy as your fan, and I became more curious about you. I tried to look for more of your footage but you’re hardly there haha I was so frustrated as you didn’t show up that much in the whole episode. But then Mnet released the individual cam, and I came to learn that you’re actually an amazing dancer. Maybe not as reknown as Taehyun, Samuel, Daniel or Ong, but you have that power that draw me into your stage performance. It’s like you became different person on stage and that really fascinated me. I also really love your signature ‘ha ha’ laugh, it’s super adorable >.<

Since then, I started rooting sincerely for you. I saw the ‘leader’ sticker has been pasted again on your shirt during the Position evaluation mission (Fear), and can’t help to wonder about the process as it wasn’t aired by Mnet. Again, you helped the inexperienced member to become better in rapping. The output? Look at Guanlin! I believe you have a role in his rap development during Produce 101. After that, I finally got to watch your performance and I was really touched by your rap lyrics in ‘Fear’. It must be hard to bear that huge responsibility since you’re young, right?  It must be suffocating to hold it by yourself, right? My heart aches by just imagining myself in your position, from your trainee period until 5 years as NU’EST leader and going through ups and downs during those hard time. That’s why I sincerely wish you all the happiness in the world – you have no idea how happy I am when you finally reached number 1 position in the 2nd elimination. I brag about it all day to my friends, even the one that don’t know anything about Kpop haha.

Then come the concept evaluation stage with Never (my favorite!), and you instantly picked as a leader again without me knowing the process as Mnet just edited it all out. I wanted you to become greedier and get more part as I really wanted to see you shine more (because you’re the coolest when you’re on stage), but what I got is 4 seconds footage of you instead. No worries, because that 4 seconds were the killing part for me. You’re such a great performer! Eventhough the team didn’t win, you managed to score 1st spot in various music chart so I was (and still am) extremely proud and happy for you! I understand that the filming process and practising the song must be exhausting for all of you, so I wanted to cheer you more. Your hardworking, selfless and genuine self is an inspiration for me to be a better individual. Everytime I’m having a hard time, I always remember that you must’ve experienced it way harder than I do, but you strive towards it anyway.

Last Friday, that ‘leader’ position was automatically yours again in Super Hot team (4 times leader in a row!). This week, watching the last song evaluation when all of the trainees danced for center position, I was thrilled because finally I was able to witness you as center position! Never have I imagined in my life that this day would come, even if it’s just for the 40 seconds test video (because I know eventually you will give up that position to someone else). Your video was my favorite by the way in terms of dancing. I was so worried when I saw your birthday prank, it must be very overwhelming for you to be pointed out in front of the ‘juniors’ for the mistake that didn’t even exist.  

You always work the hardest among the trainees (do you know how I can’t focus during seonho & daehwi self cam because I was busy looking at you keep practicing your dancing and look so tired?!) that I know and I want you to receive as much love as you give to other people, not only in Produce 101 but also NU’EST fans before. I want you to re-debut through Produce 101 and walk the flower path from now on. But as international fans, all I can do is just hoping and praying that Korean public realize your potential as much as I do and vote for you to become the top 11.  However, apparently God has other plan for you. I honestly wanted to jumped out to my laptop screen and give you the biggest, warmest hug when they announced your rank. I can’t bear to see your disappointed face again leader nim, and witnessing you holding your emotion is heartbreaking to me.

I just want to say, you’ve worked very hard and I want you to know, that no matter what happens, I’ll will always support you and other NU’EST members. You’re the greatest leader for NU’EST and the one leader that Wanna-One team will regret to never have. I long for the day when I can see you again on stage, singing and dancing, showing off your skill to lots of people and do the things that you love the most. Please don’t worry dear leader nim, this is not the end. This is the beginning of new chapter in your life. Like your lyrics, even though it’s a one way path, I’ll walk the opposite way with you. 힘내세요, 김종현! 사랑해요!

Libra Lance- the post

So @pining-keith suggested libra Lance and I was like hot dang. I agree. I know that personality wise I am like pretty much identical to Lance and I am also a libra soo yeah :)) Here is my libra Lance post

•Evidence•
-Libra 
SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22

 traits: Charming, Diplomatic, Easy-going -yes these are three basic traits but three traits that Lance has, and that frankly the other paladins lack. 

 SYMBOL: The Scales Signifying Balance, Equilibrium, Order, and Justice) -Lance is a smart boy and always does what’s right, I.e. Pro-going back and saving allura, not once putting his needs/ wants to go home before the others like Pidge and extension hunk 

 Ruling Planet: Venus -goes with his ‘Romance’ vibe the writers insist on including 

 Keyword: I BALANCE. -the team!!needs!!!lance! I firmly believe that he maintains their sense community 

 Special Colors: Blue & Lavender -uh blue?? He’s the blue paladin?? Boom Also my birthstone is sapphire which is a really pretty dark blue and blue paladin. It adds up my guys.

Libras also tend to be the more ‘pampered’ of the zodiac and are said to have refined tastes. And you cannot tell me that Lance does not like to be pampered and that he does not have refined tastes. And I speak from experience when I saw libras are a little hopeless romantic. I for sure often dream about being in like my ideal future relationship, like ya know daydreaming about it and stuff? That’s very Lance.

 We all get like have the understood that the blue lion values trust right? That’s another staple for libras. Trust and loyalty. It goes hand in hand with the prominent ‘diplomacy’ trait of ours. As we have seen Lance might be to quick to trust and be open, but nonetheless it’s something his lions values and a trait he has and that is common among libras.

 Uh I’m sure that there’s more but I’ve done this all on my phone lol and it’s 11:30 so I’ll continue this tomorrow but I had to put this out there

Hey guys!! I did a cover of SONYA ALONE from Great Comet, I hope you like it! 

hey all!!!

so a handful of you were around for last year’s calendiles day, & therefore have an idea of what’s going on. for those of you that don’t, april 28th is the day one jenny calendar graced our screens for the first time, and brought with her a level of snark none had seen directed at giles before. or, to be fair, we saw the kids snarking at giles, but we never actually saw a fellow teacher shouting “you’re a snob” across the library at him. bless u jenny calendar.

anyway, jenny and giles are adorable, their love is adorable, and april 28th is the time to make content commemorating that!! starting at midnight, april 28th (pacific standard time) and ending at 11pm that night, 

for my contributions, i’ll be posting installments (every hour, on the hour) of four different six-chapter fics centering around giles and jenny (jfc what am i promising right now someone help me), as well as reblogging any content any of you choose to make. 

reblog this post to spread the word, and let me know if you’re thinking of making something + tag me in it when you post it!

RIHANNA POSTED THE DRAWING YOU DID YESTERDAY ON HER IG !!!!!

Ohhhh my god, thank you for letting me know! I can’t believe it!

(I used a cream background originally, but after seeing her post this pink-tinted version I see this color adds a softer, more cohesive kind of flair! My coloring instincts aren’t the best so I’m very glad she’s giving me color pointers too! :P )
